Swimming Pool leaks detection :: POOL REPAIRS


Swimming pool pumps come in many sizes and shapes. Some are big, some are small, but the most common pumps are three horsepower or less and have two threaded connections at the piping system, where the water is drawn in and then pushed out. This is where leaks can occur. When properly identified and repaired, further damage will be prevented, saving money on repair bills, equipment replacement, and down time.

leak detection:

One of the most basic pump issues could be that the circuit breaker has tripped so the first thing you should do is check the power. It is also a good idea to check the skimmer basket and impeller for debris or anything else that could lead to an airflow blockage. If you can't find a solution, make sure the strainer lid is securely fastened in place and check the O-ring. Assuming these checks have not yielded a solution, it could be that there is a leakage in one of the air lines.

You'll know something is amiss if the motor makes a tremendous noise or simply refuses to work. As long as you are comfortable when it comes to dealing with electrical wiring, changing the motor is not that difficult. Turn off the breaker at the panel box to ensure the power is completely off. Unscrew the motor mounting bracket from the strainer housing.

Check the gasket as it may need to be replaced and if you see a copper wire connected to the outside of the motor, you will need to disconnect it. When it comes to the wiring on the back of the motor, remember that the ground wire is green and the other two wires are the lead wires. Disconnect the lead wires and the conduit and get rid of the motor's impeller. To install a new motor, simple reverse the process outlined above.
